Parramon Exportap not only rigorously commits to each stage of the cork selection process, ensuring the highest quality of the raw material, but also integrates sustainable practices throughout our cork stopper manufacturing process.
Our sustainability is global. For over 60 years, we have been acquiring the finest cork from all over Spain, from Salamanca, through Toledo, Extremadura, and ending in Huelva and Seville. Sustainable harvesting methods are always employed, which contribute to the well-being of the trees and the preservation of the forests.
Our commitment to sustainability also extends to our production chain. In our facilities, we have 2500 m² of solar panels that help power our processes with clean energy. Additionally, we have adopted practices for reusing collected water, ensuring responsible management of this vital resource.
But what truly sets us apart is our innovative approach to cork. We are the only company that utilizes the outer part of cork, known as the bark or wood, to generate biomass. This decision has allowed us to completely eliminate the consumption of fossil fuels in our operation. Furthermore, we waste nothing. All the dust produced in our manufacturing processes is repurposed, bringing us closer to our goal of generating zero waste.
This global responsibility not only enables us to offer products of the highest quality but also reflects our deep commitment to the environment and the preservation of trees and nature.
